Women’s lacrosse made the NCAA DIII tournament quarterfinal round for the third straight year, losing 7-5 to perennial rival and eventual national champion Trinity. Ending the season at 15-3, the team was honored with four All-America selections, the most in NESCAC. Named to the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Assocation second team was Kate Pistel ’13, while Claire Donegan ’12, Kirsten Karis ’14, and Lindsey McKenna ’14 were named to the third team.
It was Pistel’s second All-America selection. She is one of the the team’s top scorers and among its strongest defenders. Donegan came back from a 2011 injury to rank second in scoring for Colby. Karis was a standout in her first season on defense, while McKenna led Colby in scoring and ranked fifth in NESCAC with 45 goals.
It was the Mules’ third consecutive season with 15 wins.
